Ian Michael "Chico" Hamilton (born 31 October 1950 in Streatham) is a former midfielder who played for Chelsea in the 1966-67 season, having joined the club as a junior. He is the youngest player to have appeared for the Chelsea first team, making his debut aged 16 years and 138 days. He only played for the Blues on five occasions however, scoring twice. After a season at Southend United he went on to have a long and successful career at Aston Villa, and also played for Sheffield United before finishing his career in the North American Soccer League. Hamilton was nicknamed "Chico" after the prominent American jazz drummer who shared his surname.
Having joined the club as a junior, he became Chelsea's youngest player – and goalscorer – in a 1-1 draw against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane, equalising after former Chelsea striker Jimmy Greaves had given Spurs the lead. He made four more appearances for Chelsea during the 1966-67 season, scoring a second goal in a 3-2 loss at Leicester City in the final league game of the season. He spent the 1967-68 season at Southend United before joining Aston Villa for a fee of £5,000.
One of England's oldest and most decorated clubs, Aston Villa were undergoing a period of turmoil when Hamilton joined, and were relegated to the Third Division at the end of his second season. Having established himself in the side he contributed to the club's recovery; Villa were promoted to the Second Division in 1972, having reached the League Cup final the previous season despite being in the third tier. Hamilton won the League Cup with Villa four years later, playing in a 1-0 victory against Norwich City.
Hamilton joined Sheffield United a year later, where he spend two seasons, before moving to the USA to play in the emerging North American Soccer League. He played for Minnesota Kicks and San Jose Earthquakes, before coaching youngsters in the US after his retirement from playing.
